Suspected IPOB insurgents have attacked the Divisional Police Station, Uli, in Ihiala Local Government Area, Anambra on Friday.

Policemen had on Thursday repelled attack on the community by the gunmen, but they returned on Friday to attack the police station.

Confirming the incident, Tochukwu Ikenga, said the attack was foiled.

Mr Ikenga, a deputy superintendent of police, said the station is still standing and that there was no loss of personnel, adding that one of the operational vehicles, a Lexus 330, used by the assailants, was recovered at the scene.

“The station is in good condition and no personnel or arms were lost,” Ikenga revealed.

He said Echeng Echeng, the commissioner of Police in Anambra, had commended the personnel for their gallantry.

He assured of the command’s firmness and readiness to enhance public safety and peace in the State.

“Due to the superior fire power of the police operatives, the attackers abandoned one of their operational vehicles, a Lexus 330 black colour, and fled the scene.

Meanwhile, the area has since been fortified by the operatives of the command and operations are ongoing,” he said.
